Ann Clwyd has called for an investigation into high mortality rates in Welsh hospitals similar to the Keogh Inquiry for England. The Cynon Valley MP has published her report into the way complaints int the NHS in England, calling for a 'revolution' in the way patients' concerns are dealt with.
She says she's 'confident' that the Welsh Government will want to follow some of her recommendations and says she's had regular meetings with the Welsh Health Minister. She's also due to meet the First Minister next week.
But she says she hopes there'll be 'something similar to Sir Bruce Keogh's review in England' which investigated 14 hospitals with high mortality rates. She told our Political Editor Adrian Masters that high mortality rates are 'a smoke signal for something that's wrong.'
